Présentation de l'éditeur :

In the wake of an infection that has left Baton Rouge unsettled and roiling with the undead , three young friends Mazoch, Vermaelen and Rachel band together to search for Mazoch s missing father. Their mission is to visit all the places he once lingered: his favourite fast food restaurants, the movie theatre he frequented with his son and the city park. As hurricane season looms, uncertainty and suspicion of each other s motives threatens to pull the group apart, but still, the friends search continues. Over the course of a week, day after day, they haunt the places Mazoch s father once haunted, confronting the same persistent hope that faces all who grieve: that whomever, whatever they have lost, will return to them, in one shape or another. Turning typical zombie fare on its head, Bennett Sims delivers a wise and philosophical rumination on the nature of memory and loss in this remarkable debut novel.

Revue de presse :

Bennett Sims is a writer fearsomely equipped with an intellectual and linguistic range to rival a young Nabokov s, Nicholson Baker s gift for miniaturistic intaglio, and an arsenal of virtuosities entirely his own. A Questionable Shape announces a literary talent of genre-wrecking brilliance. --Wells Tower, author Everything Ravaged, Everything Burned

Playful, absorbing, bittersweet, and intelligent, and, like a bite, it gets under your skin. --Kevin Brockmeier, author of The Brief History of the Dead

Description du livre Two Dollar Radio, United States, 2013. Paperback. État : New. New.. 190 x 142 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. The smartest zombie novel since Colson Whitehead s Zone One. -Ron Charles, The Washington Post A Questionable Shape presents the yang to the yin of Whitehead s Zone One, with chess games, a dinner invitation, and even a romantic excursion. Echoes of [Thomas] Bernhard s hammering circularity and [David Foster] Wallace s bright mind that can t stop making connections are both present. The point is where the mind goes, and, in that respect, Sims has his thematic territory down cold. -The Daily Beast A thinking fan s zombie novel. one that asks the question: Do we lose our humanity when the world starts to crumble? -Atlanta Journal-Constitution Yes, it s a zombie novel, but also an emotionally resonant meditation on memory and loss. -San Francisco Chronicle Compressed, copiously footnoted and literary, Bennett Sims A Questionable Shape focuses on a zombie outbreak s effect on a young man and his girlfriend in a single week, in which he and his best friend undertake a quixotic, zombie-strewn search for a missing father. -Los Angeles Times Evokes the power of David Foster Wallace with a narrative that s cerebral, strangely beautiful, philosophical, and pretty, well, brilliant. -Bustle A Questionable Shape is a novel for those who read in order to wake up to life, not escape it, for those who themselves like to explore the frontiers of the unsayable. [A Questionable Shape] is more than just a novel. It is literature. It is life. -The Millions Brilliantly sensitive, whip-smart. Sims genius lies in how he builds a terrifically engrossing and utterly unique novel, not in spite, but rather because of the familiarity of the material. A book that is just as touching and funny as it is riotously smart. -The Rumpus Bennett Sims is a writer fearsomely equipped with an intellectual and linguistic range to rival a young Nabokov s, Nicholson Baker s gift for miniaturistic intaglio, and an arsenal of virtuosities entirely his own. A Questionable Shape announces a literary talent of genre-wrecking brilliance. -Wells Tower Mazoch discovers an unreturned movie sleeve, a smashed window, and a pool of blood in his father s house; the man has gone missing. So he creates a list of his father s haunts and asks Vermaelen to help track him down. However, hurricane season looms over Baton Rouge, threatening to wipe out any undead not already contained, and eliminate all hope of ever finding Mazoch s father. Bennett Sims turns typical zombie fare on its head to deliver a wise and philosophical rumination on the nature of memory and loss. Bennett Sims was born and raised in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. His fiction has appeared in A Public Space, Tin House, and Zoetrope: All-Story. A graduate of the Iowa Writers Workshop, he currently teaches at the University of Iowa, where he is the Provost Postgraduate Visiting Writer in fiction. N° de réf. du libraire AAS9781937512095
